3D Printer Photo Booth Makes Figurines Instead of Photos

Tokyo’s stylish Harajuku district will soon be home to an unusual pop-up photo booth - customers will walk away not with photos, but with 3D printed figurines of themselves. The customers is first 3D scanned in a process that requires them to stand still for 15 minutes. A 3D model of the customer is then refined on a computer before output to a 3D printer. The figurines are available in sizes ranging from 4 to 8 inches. The 3D printer photo booth will be open November 24 to January 14, 2013. It is the work of Japanese creative studio PARTY.

It’s the democratization of the figurine… No need to be famous or a superhero to have a miniature version of yourself, to put on a shelf.

The future is awesome.
